    I would not be where I am today without the coursework, faculty, and my friends at SLC. This program genuinely focused my passion for healthcare into a skillset that I could utilize to jumpstart my career. My experience was truly life-changing. I’d recommend prospective students who aspire to be in a leadership and management role in the healthcare domain to seriously consider SLC’s Health Care Administration program.
